Online, Green Infrastructure: How can we build a sustainable future?
Event Description

Due to our growing population and increased urbanization, it is estimated that globally we build the equivalent of a city the size of Paris every single week!

At present, the building and construction industry is responsible for almost 40% of global carbon emissions, of which 70% is from energy consumption and the remainder from construction materials.

This online event will include a panel discussion with experts in construction from both industry and academia to highlight the top priorities and challenges for decarbonizing infrastructure, as well as cutting-edge research in the area. There will be the opportunity for you to ask the panelists your burning questions and understand the best practices for building a greener world. All staff, students, and the general public are welcome.
